Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mono (MDVSA-2008:210-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 37751
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionCRLF injection vulnerability in Sys.Web in Mono 2.0 and earlier allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary HTTP headers and conduct HTTP response splitting attacks via CRLF sequences in the query string.
The updated packages have been patched to fix the issue.
This update was too late for inclusion in Mandriva Linux 2009, so it is being released now for that version.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
